Workplace Giving is an easy and effective way for organizations and their employees to realize their philanthropic goals. We can provide the tools necessary to present to your organization. If your organization already has an established workplace-giving program, please consider designating Hope for Vision for your contributions. If you would like more information on how you can set up a Hope for Vision Workplace Giving Campaign at your organization, please email us.
Donate Stocks and Securities
If you own stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other assets, it may be advantageous to make your gift directly in the form of securities rather than cash. An outright gift of long-term, appreciated securities is exempt from capital gains taxes, and you receive a charitable tax deduction at the fair market value of the securities.
If you have securities that have declined in value over the years and are interested in donating them to Hope for Vision, you may find it more advantageous to sell the securities first and contribute the proceeds to charity as opposed to donating the securities outright. This strategy should allow you to claim a deduction for both the loss from the sale of the securities as well as the charitable gift. Contact us to learn more.
You may want to consider including Hope for Vision in your overall financial, tax and estate planning goals. Planned gifts include contributions made through your will, charitable trust, insurance or retirement plans. Contact us to learn more.
